Hello everyone,

I'm about to order a Maserati Grecale GT, but I'm still trying to get more impressions first.
However, in couple of reviews I saw people pointing that Hill Hold or Hill Start Assist are not working in Grecale. I did one test drive but forgot to test this. Any of new owners can test if this functionality is working ?
Is simple just to stop on a hill, apply the break, then take the foot from the break and accelerate, the car should not move backwards while the foot is moving from break to acceleration.

Thanks in advance for oyur answers.

Welcome to the forum.
I have not personally heard or read of this anywhere and have been following reviews since March and placing my order, but we do have a couple of members with cars already and hopefully we will get some actual user feedback soon.

Thanks for reply. I have translated the hole review and had a good read (y) I'm with what you are saying now "no auto hold" as does my Macan if you double tap the brake when stopped and in drive. But if you have drive engaged when taking your foot off the brake it should not roll back. Hopefully owner members will report soon.

Hi @Ciurica,
Welcome also from my side:
I am not sure now if we mean the same thing. If the automatic transmission is in D, I think (in any car) the rollback must be prevented in general.
But I have not yet paid special attention because that must work intuitively for me. Means I have noticed nothing negative / unusual.
In the user manual it then actually says: "Hill Start Assist", which is a standard activated option.
In this respect, I would be relaxed. However, I will explicitly test the behavior on a very steep hill and will let you know.

btw. Indeed the car has unfortunately no hold function, unlike in other cars: Hold vehicle in position in D without holding down the brake.
